(YouTube link)"A Harvard University professor has unveiled a fourth century fragment of papyrus that she says is the only existing ancient text that quotes Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife. Karen King, an expert in the history of Christianity, says the text contains a dialogue in which Jesus refers to "my wife," whom he identified as Mary.
The fragment of Coptic script is a copy of a gospel, probably written in Greek in the second century. King unveiled the fragment of the "Gospel of Jesus's Wife" in Rome on Tuesday. She says it doesn't prove Jesus was married but speaks to issues of family and marriage that faced Christians.
King says on a Harvard website that the dialogue includes the disciples discussing whether Mary is worthy and Jesus saying "she can be my disciple." Source
Smithsonian Channel is planning to debut a program about it September 30 at 8 p.m. ET.. Note how serious they view this finding, to the point that they believe it will cause some to reassess Christianity.
The Fingerprints of Satan
- The fragment had 33 words on it. Satanist believe that power resides in '33'. The Masonic New Age christ is tied to the number 33.
- Karen King says that it is not clear evidence that Jesus was married, but it does plant seeds for a future agenda.
- The speculation of Jesus being married was the subject of Dan Brown’s best seller, The Da Vinci Code.
- She is a member of the Jesus Seminar, of the Westar Institute. The Seminar decided to grant the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas, a Gnostic gospel, equal standing with the four traditional Gospels. The Gnostics taught that Man may attain to the divine state through the knowledge of secret mysteries. The Introduction to the Gospel of Thomas describes the Gnostic message of "another Jesus."
